IRL Buildings that look like Doom Buildings

Recommended Posts

Hello y'all.

 

Sorry if this topic (or similar) has already been posted in the past. I tried to search for topics like this, but couldn't find any similar match.

Lately I've been wondering about Doom maps, how do mappers master their craft and where do they take their inspiration, and also wondering about Architecture in general aswell.

 

The other day I stumbled upon this photograph of the Teresa Carreño Theatre/Cultural Complex and though that, from my totally ignorant point of view, it kinda looks like a military building from Phobos, taken from Episode 1 of Doom. I have no knowledge of Architecture whatsoever so I can't really tell if there's actually any similarity in terms of architectural style or not.

Anyways, have you found any other IRL buildings that you think looks like a Doom building? Has it inspired you to try and recreate it?

 

Greetings!

It loooks like some kind of futurist brutalism type of building but the windows on bottom image look strangely similar to BLAKWALL.

 

I would also add those irl locations which have the gargoyle face and other decorations, lol.

In England, many of our cities look like MAP13.

 

Okay, maybe that's a bit harsh. The drab colour scheme is there at least.

BLAKWALL was actually inspired by id Software's office building!

IMHO these look more like Quake 2 buildings.

(Edit: or maybe even Unreal 2?)

Yeah! In fact, it is a Brutalist design AFAIK.

Lots of post-soviet ones look boxy, some skyscrappers do too, that's why planisphere2 was possible in the boom engine.
